  • Kentucky shelter helping rescue animals from Irma's path

As our kennels become available when pets are adopted, we will be able to help more pets from Hurricane Harvey. The animals taking the flight to San Diego were all already in animal shelters prior to the storm, the center said on Facebook.

The Texas animals are being flown via Wings of Rescue, a California-based nonprofit organization founded in 2012 to get endangered dogs and cats to no-kill shelters for adoption.

Like other animal shelters in the Pacific Northwest and beyond, Blue Mountain Humane Society in on deck to become a Noah's ark of sorts. Animal Friends has partnered with Pittsburgh Aviation Animal Rescue to bring the dogs to Pittsburgh.

All adoptable dogs are spayed/neutered, current on vaccinations, microchipped, and sent home with a certificate for a free veterinary exam, 30 days of worry-free pet insurance from Trupanion and his/her first bag of food from Purina. Let's just say a lot of "poop bags" were handed out! "We have our emergency shelter, but with 300 dogs and cats, it was pretty intense".

Volunteer vets with Mukwonago Animal Hospital took six for medical treatment.

The rest of the dogs would be cleaned, fed and allowed to rest.

"We really want to get the animals out of the area", said director Kim Staton.

Montgomery-County Animal Shelter and Operation Pets Alive!, of Montgomery County, Texas, joined forces to save the almost 700 pets from potential euthanasia and give them dry places to stay with food, water and required medical attention.

With thousands of these family pets needing a place to stay until they're reunited with their loved ones, it's the previously stray and sheltered animals that will be pushed out and those are the animals Black Dog is hoping to save.

They are also urging people not to abandon their pets at this time.

"The whole country is willing to help", Archer said. As the rescue progresses, HAWS officials may re-open that list, but they've stopped taking names now.

Barr said anyone interested in a dog can go online and begin the application process so when the animals arrive, that part of the process will be complete.

Financial donations are also needed, as the group will also be purchasing supplies in the US due to border laws, so you can make donations to Black Dog's Paypal account.
